This is the story of a historic win that goes beyond the emotions of the day to explain how the many months of innovation, research, trials, and failures helped secure the Cup in the final race.

America’s Cup, affectionately known as the Auld Mug, is a trophy awarded to the winner of America’s Cup match race between two sailing yachts. One yacht, known as the defender, represents the yacht that currently holds America’s Cup and the second yacht, known as the challenger, represents the yacht club that is challenging for the cup.

The timing of each match is determined by an agreement between the defender and the challenger. America’s Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy.

The trophy was held by the NYYC from 1857 (when the syndicate that won the cup donated the trophy to the club) until 1983. The NYYC successfully defended the trophy twenty-four times in a row before being defeated by the royal Perth yacht club, represented by the yacht Australia. The NYYC’s reign was the longest winning streak (in terms of date) in the history of all sports.

Starting History of Americans’ Cup:

The cup was originally awarded in 1851 by the royal yacht squadron for a race around the Isle of weight in the United Kingdom which was won by the schooner America.

Originally known as the ‘R.Y.S. £100 Cup’, the trophy was renamed the ‘America’s Cup’ after the yacht and was donated to the New York yacht club (NYYC) under the terms of the deed of gift, which made the cup available for perpetual international competition.

The history and prestige associated with America’s Cup attract not only the world’s top sailors and yacht designers but also the involvement of wealthy entrepreneurs and sponsors. It is a test not only of sailing skill and boat and sail design but also of fundraising and management skills.

Competing for the cup is expensive, with modern teams spending more than 100 million dollars each, the 2013 winner was estimated to have spent 300 million dollars on the competition.
